Norwegian transsexual seeks two passports

A Norwegian transsexual has sought the help of Norway’s antidiscrimination office to assist her in obtaining two passports. The male-to-female transsexual, who prefers to remain anonymous, wants to travel as either a man or a woman and claims that traveling as a woman with a passport displaying a man’s face is a difficult task since the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

It is “virtually impossible to travel as a woman. I therefore make a plea that these rules be liberalized such that trans-persons have the opportunity to have two passports,” she wrote in her request to the antidiscrimination office. She added that the Ministry of Justice does grant multiple passports in some cases.
